Dream no. 148

Hannibal and the Ancient Romans
they dance with beautiful girls
so at peace, so at war
Romeo and Juliet
they dance until their last breath
at the base of the rainbow
Masters and servants
they dance in circle
in wealth and in poverty
Tiny shadows orphan of light
they dance timidly
in an infinite scale of grays
My ghosts and the damned souls
they dance insanely
at the frontier of knowledge
Me and you
we dance like in a dream
in the sweetest embrace at the end of the night.

Annibale e gli antichi romani
danzano con ragazze bellissime
così in pace, così in guerra
Romeo e Giulietta
danzano fino all’ultimo respiro
alla base dell’arcobaleno
Servi e padroni
danzano in circolo
in ricchezza e in povertà
Piccole ombre orfane di luce
danzano timidamente
in un’infinita scala di grigi
I miei fantasmi e le anime dannate
danzano follemente
ai confini della conoscenza
Io e te
danziamo come in sogno
nel più dolce abbraccio al termine della notte
_ Hugh S. Graves _
